3M™ Friction Shims

With 3M™ Friction Shims and Coatings, there is a wide range of possibilities for building lighter and more compact designs, without compromising on power and torque transmission. Learn how customer projects have been successfully implemented through the use of 3M™ friction-increasing solutions.

More power transmitted through increased friction

As the concept states: In general, the aim is to avoid “friction losses”. Therefore, it appears counter-intuitive that a targeted increase in friction brings about higher efficiency in machines.

3M™ Cooling Fillers

3M™ Boron Nitride Cooling Fillers are suitable for thermally conductive and electrically insulating connections. The fillers have a number of advantages, such as, for example, the low development costs, design freedom, reduced production and assembly costs.

Heat sinks made from plastics: thermal conductivity by Boron Nitride

Large part counts, low costs and considerable design freedom: with good reason, plastics are a favorite material with modern designers. However, in the electronics field they are quickly bumping up against the stops: plastic is not heat-conductive. Electronic components require materials that can dissipate heat quickly and effectively in the smallest space. As a filler for polymers, 3M™ Boron Nitride solves this dilemma very simply.
